Winterhalter again portrayed the young and pretty Princess Royal in 1856. According to http://www.kaiserinfriedrich.de/, this was for her first drawing room - her debut.

Winterhalter portraits are always lovely, but details of Princess Royal Victoria's dress are lost in this 1856 portrait. She liked to wear blue hair ornaments.
